HybridCare™ Heat Pump Technology

A typical dryer uses large amounts of energy, this dryer consumes a fraction of the energy in the form of hot, moist air. The HybridCare™ dryer is a ventless heat pump dryer that uses a refrigeration system to dry and recycle the same air. The laundry is dried with low temperatures.

Lint Screen Cleaning:

The lint screen will be  located in the door opening of the dryer. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.

If you use fabric softener on a regular basis, your lint screen may have residue build up that is typically not visible. This residue should be cleaned occasionally for better drying performance. After removing lint, scrub with a nylon brush and detergent to remove this residue.

Is the Cooling Fan clean and free from obstructions?

Were you drying a large load?

A large load may not allow enough air flow for the clothes to dry normally. Separate the load for better results.

Did you use an Automatic or a Timed Dry Cycle?

Use the Automatic Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer.
Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.
